Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf, who returned to the country after four years of self-imposed exile in Dubai and London, has said that he felt "a little insulted and humiliated" standing before a judge in a Karachi court, where he appeared to seek extension of his pre-arrest bail in a series of cases.

Musharraf, 69, who ruled the country for about a decade, following a military coup in which he overthrew Nawaz Sharif, appeared in a court in Karachi for the first time in his life, reports CNN.

Musharraf further said that there is no case against him, adding that the arrest warrants issued for him were for his non-appearance in the court. He also said that the cases against him are politicised.

Musharraf was required to appear in person in the court to extend the bail allowance. On March 22, a single-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Mushir Alam, had granted a 10-day bail period to the former military dictator.

The court extended by 15 days his pre-arrest bail period.

The court had also granted Musharraf a pre-arrest bail in the Akbar Bugti and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto murder cases. (ANI)
